Indeterminism Is Integral To Causation

"indeterminacy" obviously exists until you are able to reach a non-causation case as each cause is composed of at least one prior cause iteratively.

While I admittedly did not have the time to parse your post in depth, if I am not mistaken, I believe the summation is that you are defending "causation" as integral to the study of life. On this, I would agree.

I also agree with you that any attempt to rid us of this notion of causation is anti-intuitive and leads to unacceptable paradoxes - EXCEPT in the one and only non-causative case.

When reached, this One and only case creates unacceptable paradoxes ONLY IF causation is ascribed.

This one and only case of non-causation is only acceptable to a few, and yet,
to the remaining, it is still intuitive for some, by their own admission, if not all.

The one case ? God, our Creator.

Creator, creature.
Non-caused, caused.
